Last week I headed over to Cades Cove with these deer in mind. In winter they tend to congregate in large groups in the central meadow of the Cove. I parked along the loop road and walked down into the field among the herd of young bucks. Don’t ask me where the doe or the old bucks were … these were a bunch of young guys.

It’s a lot like walking into a cow pasture. The deer were barely interested in me, certainly not threatened. My new interest in video was a perfect match for these bucks frolicking in the winter sun. You can also view a full-size version.

Please stop in and visit me to see the complete display of Smoky Mountains Photography at the William Britten Gallery in Gatlinburg, TN.
